Summary

Summary

The Civil War was fought first and last by the common soldiers of North and South. This book looks at their daily routine, from drill and camp chores to the meals they ate, the ways in which they passed their abundant free time, the songs they sang, the games they played, the rules they broke, and the punishments they had to pay. First to last, they were typical of American volunteer soldiers at war. High spirits and irrepressible humor were their hallmarks, even as they risked their lives in the greatest adventure of their generation.
